Driver pleads not guilty to fatal collision

first_img The charge stems from a July 25 collision on Lambert Road, west of Mills Avenue in the county area of Whittier. According to the California Highway Patrol, Serrato was behind the wheel of a 2007 Toyota Matrix that struck Martin Granado of Whittier who was walking north across Lambert Road, outside a crosswalk. The Matrix was heading west on Lambert at about 40 m.p.h., CHP officers said. Serrato was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving under the influence causing great bodily injury or death. Granado, who was a linebacker for California High School, died of his injuries later at UC Irvine Medical Center. After the Thursday arraignment, members of the Granado family stood outside the courthouse and prayed. They declined comment. Serrato who later walked out with a group of supporters didn’t say anything when asked for a comment. “Not at this time,” said one of the women who accompanied Serrato. She didn’t identify herself. Serrato’s lawyer, Stephan DeSales, said his client is single mother who works a couple of jobs and is a full-time student. “The young lady I represent is a very nice person,” DeSales said. He said they’re still investigating the facts of the case. “We’re still getting information,” he added. Granado was the second member of his family to be killed in a traffic collision this year. His father’s cousin, Ralph Granado of Covina, was killed by a hit-and-run driver July 20 on the westbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway, west of Sunset Avenue in West Covina. Ralph Granado, 55, was on his motorcycle when he was rear-ended by a Toyota Yaris and knocked off his bike. As he tried to get up, he was run over by another vehicle that fled the scene. He died at the scene. No arrests have been made in the case. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.
